Wolston Correctional Centre, adjacent to Brisbane Women's Correctional Centre at Wacol, accommodates 600 protection prisoners.
Ferrous metal, steel fabrication, paint and powder coating are the major industrial workshops at Wolston Correctional Centre. Industries operate seven days a week, 12 hours a day.
The centre takes an integrated approach to the delivery of services to prisoners through a structured day timetable, which enables half of the prisoners employed in industries to work in the morning and the other half in the afternoon.
This allows workers to attend programs, education, vocational training and to use other prisoner services during the part of the day they are not required for work.
